Deregister despite the pandemic
The Corona pandemic clashes with German buraucracy. The so-called „living organ” that’s posed a challenge for many people before already is now bound to create even more difficulties. These are especially hard to overcome for people who don’t speak German. Little can be done to change the course of the pandemic by us, but some insecurities can be cleared and occuring problems solved. If you need to deregister now, during the Corona-pandemic and are, due to deadlines, even obligated to do so during the hard lockdown you probably have a lot of questions.
We try to focus on the good in the bad and have gathered information on how you can tackle at least one problem during these trying times.

Are citizen’s offices open despite the Corona-pandemic?
During the first lockdown in spring 2020, we’ve made the experience that not all citizen’s offices were open. As in any company the civil service departments as well try to have their employees work with as little exposure to other people as possible. This limits the amount of appointments handed out in the first place. The distance rules need to be kept in place and so the waiting times increase unpredictably. On top of limited appointments often the opening hours were reduced. One silverlining is, that written applications for a deregistration are indeed processed. Postal requests are not posing difficulties with any distancing rules or tied to opening hours of the respective citizen’s office.
Safely deregister from home
With the hard lockdown announced and the infection numbers rising you may not want to put yourself at risk to go to a public office in the first place. So regardless of current opening hours of citizen’s office or a very limited amount of appointments available: There’s no denying that it’s riskier to travel to your citizen’s office, queue for your appointment, hand in the application with a clerk and then travel back to your place. If you want to avoid this exposure or simply safe yourself the hassle of being confronted with constantly changing guidelines you can still deregister from home with our service. All our applications during the first lockdown and the followed light lockdown have been successfully processed and we’ve even gotten feedback that the citizen’s offices appreciate the decrease of personal appointments, because it relieves them as well. There’s less unpredictability with waiting times and cancelled appointments on a short notice.
